Default 'World's strongest' beer with 32% strength launched

A controversial Scottish brewery has launched what it described as the world's strongest beer - with a 32% alcohol content.

Tactical Nuclear Penguin has been unveiled by BrewDog of Fraserburgh.
BrewDog was previously branded irresponsible for an 18.2% beer called Tokyo, which it then followed with a low alcohol beer called Nanny State.
Managing director James Watt said a limited supply of Tactical Nuclear Penguin would be sold for £30 each.

This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance

Tactical Nuclear Penguin label warning
He said: "This beer is about pushing the boundaries, it is about taking innovation in beer to a whole new level."

£30???

So let me get this right, you pay 30 notes for a beer that tastes like shite, gets stuck in your throat and because it's so strong you have to share it with your mates.

Then you go home feeling sick.

Oh aye, onto a winner there like.

Had a couple of beers from BrewDog recently, they were rather nice.

Not as strong as that rocket fuel but nice all the same

Any beer that has 'Nuclear' in its name has, quite frankly, GOT to be amazing.

"I'll have a pint of Nuke please". It just rolls off the tongue.
